Adrienne Pitts is an award-winning art director, designer and photographer from sunny New Zealand. Her obsession with design started in primary school, when she would pay more attention to the presentation of her school projects than to the projects themselves. After a while she realised there were people that did this type of thing for a job, and the desire to become a designer took hold. At the age of 16 she took up photography and it quickly became a huge passion.
She holds a Bachelor of Design degree with First Class Honours from Massey and has worked as both a graphic designer and photographer in a number of roles around the world. She is currently based in London where she is an art director for Jamie Oliver’s magazine and tries to get out and about with her camera as often as she can. Which is of course never often enough.
In June 2012 she was extremely honoured to be named Designer of the Year in the prestigious PPA Awards.
